Hi all, Nicole here again! Just an update on the fundraiser:
Due to restrictions slowly starting to ease, we are only taking donations until this Friday, the 22nd, rather than through June. There is less of a need to continue raising funds when we are able to get back to a (new) normal for the remainder of the season. The already donated funds and what we are able to pull in this week (we're halfway to our goal!) will help a great deal in allowing Tony & Kelley to recoup lost revenue from April and May due to closures.
After that, we will keep the Elkwood Store up (more Elkwood items, along with metal and wood home goods from a local artisan have been added) as another way to support where we can offer something in return.
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated or purchased something. It means the world. Though we weren't able to welcome you in early spring, this has helped put us in a good position to welcome you whenever you want to join us again. ♡
Hey Winter, you can go away anytime soon:) We are so looking forward to Spring!
Hello to all of our Family, Friends and Fellow Campers!
We have some great news, Tony has a new kidney and is recovering very well:) Thanks to his brother Tom, who is also doing very well:) We would like to take this time to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to Tom, Debbie and their family for all the love and support through the whole thing. We love you guys and owe you the world! Thanks to all of our family and friends for the love and support also. It is so nice having you all in our lives and we love you.
Next, our daughter Nicole has created a new website for Elkwood Campground and it is awesome! We are now at www.elkwoodcampground.com. Please make sure to check out all of our new rates and information as some of it has changed or increased a small amount for the upcoming season.

Hello to all our friends and family (campers:))
It has been along time since I have posted anything and I am so sorry;( We hope all is well with everyone and you are all enjoying this winter!!
It has been a very different winter for Tony and I. Driving school bus has kept us busy most of the winter. We lost Tony's dad and that was very sad.
But for the most we are making a few changes to the campground. We have added a few sites, changed a few sites, giving the office a new redo inside!!! The outside will get done this spring-summer. We are planning on adding one of the large bathrooms to the women's side of the bathhouse this spring, also.
We are looking forward to Spring and seeing everyone again for our 4th season here at Elkwood Campground!! We are still loving every minute of running the campground and look forward to many more.......
We are already booking up for the 2017 season and hoping that is as great as 2016 was;)
Thank you all so much for camping with us and telling all your friends and families.
P.S. We love seeing everyone and meeting new campers!!!
See you all soon,
Tony and Kelley

Don't forget the Elk will be bugling mid to end of September and the color up here is so beautiful during color change. Reserve your spots now, they are going fast!!

We hope all the kids enjoy their first day back to school and to those who had to go back last week, we hope you all had a great week!
ELK SEASON....... We took a golf cart ride on the nature trail today and seen soooo many Elk tracks. Bigggg ones, medium and small!! They are starting to travel and have been bugling, also:)
COLOR CHANGE....... The trees are starting to turn color a little bit and some are starting to lose their leaves already.
GOOD NEWS....... We are going to try staying open this year for hunters and snowmobiling . The water will have to be turned off but the electricity will be on and we are putting are heads together, we think we have come up with a way so we can have 2 bathrooms open with showers:) We will be keep the campground plowed out.
Thanks again to all of our campers, family and friends for camping with us this season. Our second one and we have loved every minute of it!
Tony and Kelley
Tony and I would like to shout out "THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR CAMPING WITH US" This season has given us the incentive to do 110% better next season;)
We actually have only 2 sites left for Labor Day! This means a lot to us and we can't thank all of you for camping with us enough!! I know we still have 2 1/2 or more months of camping time left and I personally can't wait to hear the Elk Bugle and see the color change. We love it here and Thank you all again and again for making this happen for us!!
Thanks for camping with us!
Tony and Kelley
Hi Family and Friends! I know I haven't posted anything on face book for a while now. Tony and I have been very busy this spring. We added a cabin, almost have the bath house painted. The women's bath room has been updated, men's will be done this fall. The weather prolonged the opening of the pool, but Tony has worked hard to get it up and running and it looks Amazing! Swimming is a go! Lots more updates to come.
On the other hand, We had a great May thanks to our Mushroomers and Memorial Day campers:) 4th of July is looking great, we have a few more sites available if anyone is thinking of last minute camping! We have met many new campers this year and hope to meet many more..... We have 7 seasonal campers this year and hopefully 2 or 3 more coming in this season!!
We would like to Thank all of our family and friends (campers) who have helped spread the word that we are here!!!
We always enjoy seeing you all pull in and visiting with you:)
Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July!
Kelley and Tony
Tony and I are working hard to get the campground ready for our 2nd season! We are excited to see all of our family and friends from last year and welcome all of you new campers this year. We have a few new addition to the campground. We now have 2 campers for rent and a new cabin. We have made a few improvements to the campground this spring and plan to make more as we go through this season.

[01/01/15] Happy New Year Everyone! Only 4 more months till camping season, Yea!!! :) See you all then soon!
[12/14/14] Tony and I would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It is pretty lonely here at the Campground without all of you campers!! We are anxiously waiting for Spring. Have a wonderful winter, stay warm and see you all next year!! Thanks to all of you, we had a great 2014 hopefully an even better 2015:)
[10/01/14] Just an update.... I had to go to Ga***rd today and let me tell you, the view was so awesome that I wanted to pull over to the side of the road and just stare at the colors!! It is not quite in it's peak, but it is darn close. The view is breath taking!!! Many hills and valley's just filled with reds, oranges, yellows, purples and many different kinds of pine trees mixed in with all the colors, just spectacular!! Camper or non-camper, you will love the view:) The campground is also at its best viewing with the color. Also, there is a deer with triplets visiting us and two others!
[09/25/14] It is a beautiful week/weekend at Elkwood Campground. The colors in the campground are beautiful and the Elk are bugling at night and in the mornings! Last night Tony and I heard at least 5 bulls bugling at one another and they were so close it sounded like they were right in the campground. The deer are gracefully eating all the acorns in the campground and the Jaks (young male turkeys) are walking around like they own it:) What a beautiful time of year to sit around a campfire and enjoy all of the nature the campground has to offer! Tony and I believe that next weekend the trees will be in peak color. So breathtaking!!! Come and see for yourself;)
[09/16/14] The Elk are Bugling like crazy!!
[09/09/14] We were sitting around a campfire last night enjoying a few of our campers last night with us and we heard the first Elk bugle!! It was really neat. I have never heard this before and it was cool:) I can't wait to hear it when they all start to bugle!
[08/30/14] We would like to say Thank You to all of our campers this weekend!! The weekend started off kinda bad, but we actually have a great turn out so far. We just golf carted through the camp ground and it was perfect! The smell of camp fires, all the kids were having a great time with their flashlights and it looked like everyone was having a relaxing time sitting around their camp fires :) Such a wonderful feeling!!! Happy Labor Day Weekend:)
[08/17/14] We are having a wonderful 1st year. We have met so many fantastic people and thank each and everyone of you for making our 1st season a great one, so far. We are booking up fast for Labor Day for all you last minute campers:) We have a few sites left, give us a call!!
Campground pictures taken on Fathers Day
[07/16/14] This week we have Tony's brother, Tom and his family camping with us! We have blueberries growing in our nature trails and Brayden, Allison and Colin went to pick some for their pancakes the next morning for breakfast. Well........... the blueberries must have been pretty good because when they returned most of the blueberries were gone. They went to visit St. Ignace the next day and when they returned there was a note from "The Blueberry Fairy" and a load of blueberries so they could have their blueberry pancakes! Their faces were priceless!! So Allison drew a picture of The Blueberry Fairy and they all said Thank you! These are the precious moments we get to share at Elkwood Campground:)
Here are some pic's from our May campers. May is for mushrooming!
[07/08/14] We had a great 4th of July weekend! Great people, good fire works and lots of fun!! Many of our campers enjoyed the pool, sitting by the fire, riding the trials in the campground and the ones just down the road, the rec room and many other activities. Ice cream was a big hit this weekend:) Many thanks to everyone who came to camp with us!! Hope to see you all again, soon...........
[06/17/14] Getting ready for 4th of July weekend! Lots of improvements and lots more to come. Booking up fast. Don't wait to come and camp with us at Elkwood Campground! Pool is open!!
[05/27/14] Well we had a great holiday weekend with many wonderful campers. Some of them repeat campers and some of them new! Everyone seemed to have a great time and all of them said they would be back!! That is the best compliment ever:) Thanks to all of you!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see you all again.
[05/21/14] The weather is finally starting to be nice. Office is painted, picnic tables are being repaired and painted, fire pits getting cleaned out, got 8 loads of stone for the sites and driveway, 2 loads of boulders, ice is in the ice box ready for campers. Bring on Memorial weekend. We are ready!! Come and camp with us. We like happy campers!!
We were sorry to see you go, Brian!! Hope all goes well with your travels and job:) You will be missed.
For those of you who are reading this, Brian pulled out of the camp ground yesterday morning and he will be missed. He is a great guy and one we are glad we had the opportunity to meet. We have many other campers that are die hard mush roomer's:) There is a group here now that have had good success on their hunts. They have invited us to join them for wild rice and mushroom soup tomorrow night, Yummmmmmmm. Can't wait. I think I will take them all some frosted brownies for dessert!
[05/07/14] Thanks to everyone who liked Elkwood Campground's page on Facebook. We just bought the campground in November and we had a real hard winter, that being the reason we have no pictures. But, they will be coming soon. We would like to post before and after pictures. Lots of work to do to get it up and running for all of the camper's coming in May!!! I promise, pictures will be coming:) Come and camp with us at Elkwood Campground where camping is done right!
